The news is out: [A Republican lawmaker from Mississippi called for his state to “succeed” from the US and form its own country after President-elect Joe Biden won the election.
State Rep. Price Wallace called for the secession in a tweet that has since been deleted, according to the Mississippi Free Press.
“We need to succeed from the union and form our own country,” he wrote on Saturday, presumably meaning “secede.”
It’s unclear how Mississippi would go about separating from the US or why Wallace deleted the tweet. He did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
But he is one of a number of Mississippi’s leading Republicans to back President Donald Trump’s efforts to discredit the results of last week’s election.]
Price Wallace must be the pride and joy of Mississippi where American English is a second language.
